Autism and Social Skills - An Introduction to the Autistic Perspective Webinar

Autism and Social Skills - An Introduction to the Autistic Perspective Webinar

This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Co. Wexford Education Centre, Drumcondra Education Centre and Waterford Teachers' Centre.

This webinar will be an introduction to developing a neurodiversity-affirming approach to social skills. It will introduce participants to the emerging idea that children with Autism do not actually have deficits in social skills by looking at current research. Together, participants will explore what this means for traditional “social skills” training and the impact this sort of training has on children with Autism.
